Using an agile development approach, our team rapidly completed project tasks and deployed them in a staging environment for client feedback.
Online Organizational Timeline: Summary
PenBay Media, as a subcontractor to SAIC, provides application development services to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD). The project includes enhancements, corrections, and code refactoring for the Online Organizational Evolution web application that displays an interactive visual timeline of the OSD’s organizational structure and history within the Department of Defense from 1945 to the present. The application enables fast and efficient analysis of organizational changes in the past and across time.
OSD desired further development of an existing pilot application through improvements and corrections to functionality, user interface, and performance. The existing pilot application required significant refactoring to improve application performance and address system bugs. Within the application, there were challenges to present the interactive timeline and associated office and position-holder data in a user-friendly way, as well as administrative data management functions.
The 1.1 version of the application was successfully completed, tested, and deployed into the OSD hosting environment, and PenBay Media was engaged for a follow-on project to develop the next phase of enhancements for the application.
